BWO Chapter 21: Amulbell Underground Town & Parasol of Darkness

PhantasmalMira 3610

A/N: We fell to third in the daily rankings but…… I will try my best


「Everyone, sorry for the sudden notice, since the time is at 0 hours now, I’m thinking of a short break. The stream will resume a little bit later. 」

『Otsu』

『Good work』

『Then I’ll go look at Eriko’s stream for now』

『Otsu』

『Cya later』

Telling them so, I temporarily paused the stream and then faced Parnilla-san again.

「With this, both image and sound are cut off. Can you tell me about your business now? 」

To think that I would even temporarily cut the stream, I can only say that my curiosity had brought me so far.

However, seeing how this girl who doesn’t even utter a single word is willing to trust me, I can’t help but to return the favor.

(Thank you. We will just trip if we walk, how about a seat there)

To think that she would even thank me for that, isn’t there a limit to how polite a person can be.

In any case, seeing how our sense of distance had shortened considerably, the talk should proceed smoothly, and so I kept my eyes on the whiteboard without feeling too uptight.

(Then, let me swap this cheaper board with my better board)

There’re cheaper and better boards……? While having such thoughts, the whiteboard that Parnilla-san held disappeared and then another whiteboard that looked quite the same reappeared.

(This one can even display kanji)

T/N: So far, her words had been fully in hiraganas.

「Mu, then why didn’t you use it from the start? 」

(I didn’t want my expensive board to break before RIO-sama is willing to trust me after all)

Fumu, I was very convinced by her reasoning knowing how I wanted to break her whiteboard at first sight with a hand chop.

Well then, there’s usually not much expectation to a child’s secret in terms of potential loss and gain but, I wonder if it’s true in this virtual world?

「……」

(You see, all the people that lives down here, are all people that can’t live aboveground because of the adventurers)

「Were they perhaps…… exiled by the adventurers? 」

I just had a very terrible thought ran through my mind.

I expected that this underground town would just be a slum where rogues would gather at best, or a secret hideout of a strong organization with capable upper echelons that has complete control over the citizens here but, I was most afraid to hear the word of adventurer appearing here, it was because it made me realize the filthy truth that surrounded this underground town.

(Unn. So, everyone is very depressed. That includes me)

With her words conveying her feelings, a shade of gloom appeared on her expressionless face.

(I’m a former adventurer. But because I made illegal weapons, I fell here too)

「Illegal weapon……, but if they’re illegal, couldn’t you have avoided making them? 」

(I didn’t know because they were legal at first. But still, no one spared me, and my punishment was the loss of my speech. I can no longer declare my name. So, I can’t return to being an adventurer)

「I see, that’s why you’re not speaking at all. 」

From the long paragraph that almost overflowed the whiteboard, I could clearly tell Parnilla-san’s feelings.

A winner’s life is not guaranteed even if you’re an adventurer, and no matter how much contribution you’ve done, you will be taken down without excuses if you violated their system.

Moreover, they even abused the name declaration system in order to thoroughly crush any hopes of her returning.

In Break World Online where the game operators do not meddle with in-game affairs, any undesired situation must be mended by players themselves.

No matter what kind of absurd reason she was exiled for, the fact that Parnilla-san is here signified that the virtual world had assented to the adventurers’ actions.

「………………」

(I’m not good at fighting, but still I wanted to help everyone in my own way. But everything had become so tiring)

I could see some slight movement on her lips that can only sigh, as if trying to convey her words in a voice but couldn’t.

……I wonder why, I had always regarded adventurers other than Eriko as people up to no good but, only at this particular time I felt like my prejudice was incorrect.

(Even so, I have no intentions to back off. It will be my lost if I gave up. I must take revenge on the adventurers that pinned a crime on me while sneering)

「A revenge, at the very least, with only Parnilla-san’s meager rebellion, they won’t feel any itch. 」

(Not that. RIO-sama will help me take revenge. That’s why I have waited so long and so long without giving up)

「……Me? 」

The perseverance and patience that were like selfishness hidden in her weak appearance that felt like it could break at any time. And her tolerance to yield her will to me who would destroy the town in a manner that embodies the law of the jungle.

If it’s like that, then I can only frown over deciding whether myself or the adventurers are more fitting for a villainous role.

Since the stream was paused anyways, I will just admit it honestly. Parnilla-san is on the same side as me and has the same interests.

(And that’s why the current me is a fallen weapon smith. I’m pumping out more and more really, really strong illegal weapons with no restraint)

「Unn? Err, sorry but, I’m not aware there’s a fallen weapon smith occupation. Don’t tell me you want me to buy……」

(Welcome to Shop Parnilla. We will provide the best weapons to RIO-sama ☆)

It was really a trap after all.

The text glowed like a neon signboard, and she was beaming with a smile as if she had just pulled the best prank according to her plan in a surprise party.

「Haa. Seriously, Parnilla-san is really successful at being a businessperson. 」

This average high school girl of myself sighed unintentionally at her competence at guiding me without having me suspect anything.

However, I can say the story she had shared till now is without any shred of lie.

The text itself wasn’t accompanied by any emotions but, the moment when Parnilla-san was teary is still vivid in my memory.

Also, solely from the standpoint of my benefits, if I use her story skillfully, I can even say that it’s my just cause in a time of need.

For the time being, as fellow criminals, I shall at least look at the goods.

(I recommend this. Rather, I only have this that I want RIO-sama to use)

Taking something out of her inventory, the weapon that appeared on her hands……, so I thought but it was a shield…… no, it’s something even further than what can be called a shield.

From what I can see, it is nothing more than a parasol.

――――――――――

From just the description window that Parnilla-san showed, I could tell that it’s not just any parasol.

(See? It’s my masterpiece)

Although it’s not a weapon, its performance is something I could not praise enough. My luck today is truly great.

To think that I can practically neutralize the effects of basking in sunlight like what happened during my first login, Parnilla-san really understands the needs of a vampire.

「I very much like it. I don’t have much money on me but, I can consider buying it depending on any demands you have other than money. 」

「…………」

(That’s not everything. Look at this)

Just as I saw the text on the board changed abruptly, Parnilla-san performed a slide gesture on the description window of 【Parasol of Hidden Dark】

As if very familiar with the motion, she turned to the second page, third page……, and even more pages.

▶▶▶

When the window finally expanded after confirming all the pages, I can’t help but have my breath taken away, despite having gathered each and every information related to BWO weapons.

Parnilla-san had such a fearsome talent that it can only be described as divinely, she had perfectly demonstrated her talent as a fallen weapon smith and created a parasol with such amazing functions.
